    Wonderful! Simply wonderful. Lower middle class women of varying ages from children to middle aged, working in subdued light. Their melancholy is as palpable as their quiet dignity. And the serene beauty of these women is haunting. This picture reveals both the light and the darkness of their lives. Nice graphic detail for a change. Thank you.
